Posted (edited) · Cura 4.7 Spiralized contour Setting Blobs

I was trying to print vase Mode just to test my printer, so I am using spiralized contour with smooth spiralized contour on. The normal procedure when printing is that it should print the base first and then create a spiralized contour all the way up without stopping. But for some reason every 1/3 of the spiral it stopped for a bit and continue, because of that it create blob. I have turned on retract every layer change settings but it didn't retract when it stops. Is there any settings that I missed?

Update: found the problem, it was actually the STL file causing the problem, I tried to print it with different version of cura didn't work and i tried other slicer like prusaslicer but still the same results. after trying to find other stl file now it works.

    Are you printing over the USB?  If so then put the file on an SD card and print that way.

    Essentially, there is only 1 layer (a really long one) with Spiralize so it shouldn't retract once it's above the base.  You could try setting your line width to .6 to make the walls a bit stronger.

    I'm already printing it with SD card. it's suppose to do that but for some reason every 1/3 of the spiral it briefly stop and continue again that's why it has that pimple effect. I might try that in the future thank you.

    at this point it's the 4.7 that causing the problem. Might try using 4.6.2 for this

    update:
    I tried using cura 4.6.2 but the problem still there

    Then it's probably not the issue that I linked.

    Usually stuttering blobs dissapear by printing at slower speeds. STLs with high number of triangles / vertices cause that. Going slow gives the printer a chance to "think ahead".
